VIRTUAL: Fourth Biennial CARGC Symposium
May 8 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
A Research Workshop on “The Global Politics and Poetics of Turkish Television”
Turkish television drama is one of the leading global media phenomena of the last decade. In this virtual, invitation-only workshop, CARGC and other scholars will share their research on the global life of Turkish television drama, grappling with questions such as: what is the political economy of production and distribution behind the global commercial success of Turkish television drama? How does the viewer experience of watching Turkish drama vary between contexts? Finally, how have various national spheres debated Turkish drama as a social phenomenon that animates historical grievances and geopolitical sentiments?
